* IThoughtItMeant: When Homer and Marge receive a subpoena from Bart's lawyer and Bart explains that he wants to be emancipated from them (mainly Homer), Homer initially assumes that it means Bart wants to be a girl (presumably thinking that emancipation involves a sex change). Lisa explains to him that in this situation, "emancipated" means that Bart would be declared a legal adult and be able to move out and live on his own despite not being 18 yet (the age that a person is usually considered a legal adult).

* {{Hypocrite}}: It's somewhat hard to take Bart's complaints of Homer cheating money from him seriously given the endless cases throughout the show that he has lost, exploited, tricked or plain out stolen large sums of money from Homer and the rest of his family. [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E2SimpsonAndDelilah Homer's own ascension into fortune was ruined by Bart's stupidity]].
